Everytime I run smplayer in Fedora 19 I get the error message 127 /usr/bin/mplayer: error while loading shared libraries: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory. How do I fix this? I can't get smplayer or mplayer to work. I have the rpm livna and rpmfusion repositories that I downloaded them from. I have installed I checked. I have the 64 bit version installed. Does the 0.8.5 version of Smplayer need the 32 bit version of If so will it run on a 64 bit system? If anyone has an answer please help. Thank you.

Neither solutions worked. When I tried to install the libdv for 32bits I got:

Package libdv-1.0.0-15.fc19.i686 already installed and latest version

When I tried the second solution I got:

ln: failed to create symbolic link ‘./’: File exists.

Am I doing something wrong or do you have any other solutions? Please let me know.

Does anyone have any idea how to fix this? I just have the rmpfusion repositories and Fedora 19 repositories. Has mplayer/smplayer been tested on Fedora 19? It works fine on other Linux Distributions.

2 options

1) Install libdv for 32bits

yum install libdv-1.0.0-15.fc19.i686


2) Make a symbolic link

cd /usr/lib/

ln -s /usr/lib64/

Er! You never mix 32 and 64 bit libraries. A symbolic link is the worst idea ever. Please google etc. before you give out advice on the forum. This is bad advice.
